I was pretty excited for this flight. It’s not everyday I get to fly on an A380. It’s a bit sad that Asiana will be ending First Class service all together later in 2019. The First Class lounge was small but quiet which is always a plus these days.
I was excited to check out this “lounge”. I put lounge in quotes as I think lounge isn’t the right world. This is really an addition to the business class lounge that is only accessable to first class customers. The lounge even has a connected door to the business class area which has a larger buffet and even an outdoor deck. However, the business class lounge tends to get pretty crowded.
I was traveling to Tokyo Narita with ANA in First Class which provided access to the Polaris Lounge. This lounge is considerably smaller than SFO but still had all the Polaris Lounge staples.
I was on a end of year mileage PQD run to secure United Platinum Premier status. While there isn’t much of a difference it seemed worth it for the extra RDM earning in 2019. With a 2 hour layover in LAX I wondered over the TBIT to check out the Star Alliance lounge. There is a separate first class lounge which I’ll hopefully be in come July.
